This village grew into an industrial center with the development of the Delaware and Raritan Canal. Along the streets are brick, stucco and clapboard Federal row homes, in shades of blue, maroon, brown and turquoise. These homes were built for factory workers in the 1800's and are now in various stages of restoration. It is not honky-tonk -----there are no t-shirt shops!
The town also has some historic significance. Washington and his men visited this community at least three times in 1776, 1777 and 1778, and on his final trip through, he set up headquarters in the John Holcombe House ( 260 N. Main St.), now a private residence.
The city's riverfront is also a popular family activity center for rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoing and river trolleys.
